Champions League: Joe Cole predicts team that will win trophy


Ex-England midfielder, Joe Cole has tipped his former club, Chelsea to win the Champions League this season.

Cole, speaking with SportsMail, also said he expects at least two Premier League clubs to reach the semi-finals of the competition.

Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City are flying England’s flag this year.

“I would be stunned if we don’t get at least two teams in the semi-finals, possibly three and maybe even four.

“I just think we are so much stronger than the other leagues,” Cole said.

When asked which of the English teams could lift the trophy next May, he added: “It’s so hard. If you want me to make a prediction, then Chelsea (to win it). But that’s more out of loyalty.

“Any of the four teams can beat anyone else and we’ve got the four best teams in Europe.”
